Last weekend my nan and mum came down to Bournemouth to visit me for the weekend and we were definitely blessed with the weather! We did lots of shopping, eating, cinema-ing ( watching Grimsby with your nan is an experience…) and most of all exploring Dorset!
There’s so many beautiful places in Dorset that I want to visit, so whenever someone comes to visit me I take full advantage and whisk them away in my car! This time we targeted Lulworth Cove which is home to Durdle Door. Due to slightly inappropriate footwear we couldn’t get down to the actual cove and see the Durdle Door in its full glory, but this view was good enough!

Taking some outfit photos on the top of a hill on the coast was (un)surprisingly very difficult, but it’s pretty much the same old. My Topshop jacket, ASOS boots and Zara bag, with a black denim skirt I love but you can’t see! I mean the view was really all this post was about!
I’m 100% planning on visiting again and actually seeing what I went there to see, but if there’s anywhere in Dorset I should go please let me know!!
A visit home last week naturally meant a trip to one of my favourite places in London- Columbia Road Flower Market. I couldn’t resist picking myself up some beautiful sunflowers to brighten up my uni room. They must of been working their magic too as it was such a lovely sunny (despite it being freeezing) break from the crazy rain and wind we’ve had recently!

I became pretty obsessed with these jeans since getting them, and have been wearing them constantly. I first saw them on Megan Ellaby and Anna Heaton (who is pretty much my style icon rn, and I just want her entire wardrobe). They are such a cool statement jean, something that I definitely lacked as all I own is a few pairs of straggly black jeans, and some bleached moms that are about 10 sizes too big (except when they turn into skinnies on deadline week).My only criticism of them is that they fit me perfectly everywhere but my waist. It’s one of those situations where a size 11 needs to be a thing.
I’ve never had a pair of girlfriend jeans either, but i’m really enjoying them as they’re that bit more flattering (and girly, obvs) than boyfriend jeans. If these jeans scream one thing, it’s definitely GLASTONBURY and I’m so excited to get them muddy dancing around to The Stone Roses (crossing all my fingers and toes)!!!!
I can’t wait to play around with these jeans by dressing them up and down, pairing them with my cute pointed heels or trainers. Talking about footwear, can we all hail these boots?! They’re looking a bit worse for wear now but I never thought in a million years I would be one for faux snake skin pointed shinny boots, but here I am!
I also just want to mention these sunglasses I picked up for a few pounds from Forever 21. They remind me so much of the Mui Mui style I have been lusting over for the past year. They’re not going to last forever, but they’re a nice test run to decide if I look silly in them or not…
As you probably know (if you follow me on instagram) I have moved out of London, and back to Bournemouth for my final year of uni! The weekend before I left I tried to fit in as much as possible, which obviously meant a trip to Columbia Road to track down some Peonies.

These trousers are a year old now but I realised that I never properly blogged about them when I dug them out of my wardrobe a few weeks ago. I always found it difficult to wear them every day, partly as I never knew what top to wear with them, and partly because they do look like I’m wearing my Pjs. I thought this baggy black top worked quite nicely with them, while wearing my tailored waistcoat (which you know has been my saviour since I bought it).
So right now I’m sat in my bed in my new bedroom fighting off a cold, and I am sort of wishing I was back in the sun on Columbia Road with a bunch of new flowers! I’m not really sure what’s going to happen to JMB now I’m back at uni, and how much I will post but I’m really going to try and stay on top of it as I’m really enjoying it again!
